How to be discreet in description with diligence and a wee bit of absurdity, in Paanch.
The writer and director Anurag Kashyap’s Paanch is a show set for Kay Kay Menon. Or that’s what ends up resulting, after every scene ends. To be honest, Kashyap did give a sensational character for him to portray. Menon dissolves in this eccentric character and gives us so much through his performance. The script on the other hand, is a trickster. Though, it may revolve around five lead characters, there is only one that seduces you. And that trick is so good. Kashyap builds up and distracts us so smartly for that one frame, that not only are you impressed with that part of the film, but also now are looking forward for the film to spiral out like the poker game that it claims to be like.
